We’re looking for an awesome Product Designer to join us at Songkick. We’re a design team that’s passionate about lowering the barrier for entry to live music. You’ll help us identify and solve meaningful problems for fans and artists worldwide, to make concert-going easier, fairer and more accessible.

This is a role with its roots in UX. You’ll need a passion for well-defined, well-articulated user experience design, and the drive to move fast, learn quickly and iterate rapidly. Most of all, you’ll need the smarts to identify and justify the right approach to the right problem.

Songkick is an ideal environment to develop your skills and gain significant experience as a designer. Across tech, product and design, we’re committed to hiring at junior and mid level and supporting your development. Our designer Growth Framework provides the structure and fluidity to help you grow, progress and specialise. While ideally you’ll have a few years’ experience in the field to help you hit the ground running, if you can demonstrate the energy, mindset and process outlined above then we want to hear from you!

Best of all, Songkick is a place to have real impact. This is product design on a global scale. You'll learn from and work with people across the music industry. You’ll nurture our products and take them from seedlings into (sometimes) enormous giants. The changes you make will be seen by millions of people every month. You’ll monitor, learn, iterate and optimise for maximum effect. You’ll champion the user, and empower the wider team to feel part of design. We want to work with someone who’s happiest being scrappy, and who’ll challenge the way we think about product design at Songkick.

Requirements:

- Experience working in a Product or UX Design role in a lean/agile product team environment.
- A solid foundation of UX skills such as sketching, wireframing, prototyping, iterating and responding to feedback, and a portfolio to show it.
- Demonstrable experience in hypothesis-driven design, A/B testing, and defining cheap ways of learning and iterating.
- Experience in user research and usability testing best practices.
- A track record of initiating and leading design and discovery workshops that utilise a wider team and deliver tangible outcomes.
- A general understanding of how design impacts development along with a knack for constructing dynamic, interactive designs that are technically feasible.
- Big plus if you have a love of live music!

Key responsibilities:

- Identify and lead on design problems from beginning to end, gathering insights from data and research to inform, create and test elegant solutions that solve our users’ needs.
- Lead on user research to identify, validate or enhance our understanding of user problems, and directly influence the product roadmap with what you’ve learned.
- Work closely with Product and Tech to ensure you’re designing for impact and feasibility, and to advocate for user needs at every step.
- Design with data, focus on metrics and ship, learn and iterate fast.
- Quickly build prototypes that show what’s possible, which we’ll test online quickly with millions of real users or in our in-house usability lab.
- Work across multiple platforms (iOS, Android, web) and markets (B2C, B2B, internal) to create cohesive product experiences.
- Collaborate with your fellow designers to improve the way we work together, to offer and receive productive feedback, and to tackle bigger design challenges as a collective.
- Advocate for lean UX principles - there won’t be any 800 page UX specifications here!
- Work with our product team to build the best experiences possible: whether that’s changing a design to adapt to technical constraints or suggesting a new feature that our users will love. There’s no ego on our team, and we want to keep it that way.

Benefits!

- Private health insurance
- Pension scheme
- Cycle to work scheme
- Flexible working
- Spotify subscription
- Freshly stocked kitchen
- Infinite coffee
- Office gigs
- Quarterly socials
